Leland neighborhood tries to stop break-ins, thefts


A series of car break-ins has some Leland residents on edge. The Leland Police Department says three vehicles were broken into and another three were stolen in the Lanvale Trace community. Residents say this is the third time a rash of vehicle break-ins has hit their community. The incident has residents taking a few extra steps to stop future break-ins.

"When I'm in and out at night we try to leave more lights on perhaps even the garage lights some times," Tracey Connette said. "Talking to my neighbor the other night a lot of us are trying to do that to deter people from coming around."

The community has a Neighborhood Watch, but residents still want a greater police presence. If you have any information about the break-ins call the Leland Police Department at 371-1100 or call 911.
